I was born and raised in Montana. I grew up skiing, hiking, biking, and snowmobiling. I moved to Utah in 99' to ski and go to school. I moved to AK for a season where I got certified to be a heli-ski guide in Haines (level 2 avalanche certification and my wafa medical certification) After a short time living in Spain I moved back and married my wife. We now have a son and still love to ski, hike, bike and snowmobile with the little one!
I love the X9 shifters you don't need a second mortgage to buy them and they shift clean, fast, and quietly (after using both XO and X9 I don't think I could tell the difference in shifting). Definitely a must!
I am avid X9 user but I must say these new type two derailleurs are way beyond the old style. Its like I am riding my quite single speed, no chain slap at all along with quiet shifting makes this a must. The X9 is crisp and cleaning shifting without breaking the bank for XO.
I bought these for mountain biking and trail running after fighting with heavier less sporty glasses. They are awesome!! Super lightweight and the adjustable nose piece makes the fit dialed in for your face. With 3 lenses to swap out (changing them takes 30 seconds) all your basses are covered. I now use them for everything and can't seem to put my other glasses on.
I used these to replace some lock on type grips. They go on super easy with some hairspray and stay put even when I am wrenching on them while climbing. They are definitely wider around and have more padding then most grips I have used which makes them nice and comfy.
This is really my first altimeter so I have nothing to compare it with. It seems user friendly and easy to learn. I have had issues with the battery life like others have stated in their reviews but the battery is super simple to replace. All in all it been a great purchase and has held up to some fairly regular abuse.
This is an awesome shirt but not really something I would want to ride in. Its heavy material and seems like in the heat it would just hold the heat in. For hanging out and casual wear is a great shirt!
I love this box, I have it on my Subaru forester and it looks great, doesn't effect the gas mileage and doesn't make much noise on the highway (by far much quieter then my previous boxes). Even with the low profile I can fit a ton of gear in it.
